Hey everyone. I noticed upon opening my System Preference panel that the "Sharing" icon has been replaced by what appears to be a background.



How do I fix this?

Does it happen to other users? Do you have another install of the same version of OS X available?

It's just a corrupted System Preferences cache. Quit System Preferences and then go into your home folder -> Library -> Caches and delete the com.apple.preferencepanes.cache file.

Wrong Library folder. You're looking in /Library when you need to be looking in ~/Library. It's the one in your home folder, not the root of the hard drive.
